2:00 pm
da da, da da, da da, see you tomorrow morning on the fox business network. on the "buzz beater" this sund me d . >> the media descends on the university of virginia after a black man is you haved up outside a bar. this is captured on cell phone. [ inaudible ] blee you are [blank]. >> how did [blank]. >> when it is a black male there is a preseened threat and it drives the media coverage rather than the speculation. aare journalists rushing to judgment and casting this as a national symbol of racially charged brutality before the facts are in? i went to the campus. >> and starting with towed cruz
2:01 pm
falsely accuses of scaring the heck of a three-year-old girl. >> this is blown up. every reporter has written about it. first it was girl startled and then girl terrified and at the end of the freddie like krueger a girl had a nightmare. >> and the theme showing up in a piece called "marco rubio's house of horrors." resignation of aaron schott who noticed theeporter was redecorated in down downton abbey. >> and a story of murder suspect robert durst had no idea he would be arrested before the final episode that seemed to contain a confession. >> were there deals over the timing of the arrest? >> of course not. we do not have that power.
2:02 pm
we are not in charge of the arrest time asking we had no idea. i was very nervous about it. >> did the political maker strike a blow for justice or too cozy with the scope? this is "media buzz." i am howard kurtz. >> ted cruz was giving a campaign speech to republicans in new hampshire and a small voice responded from the audience. >> the obama and clinton foreign policy of leading from behind the whole world is on fire. the world is on fire, yes. your world is on fire. you know what? your mommy is here and everyone is here to make sure the world you grow up in is even better.
2:03 pm
[ applause ] >> the headlines make the senator sound like a monster ted cruz shares young girl with fiery numb speech or "new campaign strategy, scare tiny children." and another said her daughter was not frightened the but the price would not listen. >> she looked at him as if he was hero he would put the world in was burning out, he was going to be the firefighter. never even once did they ask me or my daughter, what really happened. when i did say stuff to the reporters that were there they did not fill in the last part that i told them which was she thought he was a firefighter. >> joining us to scrutinize the coverage is sharyl attkisson and amy holmes from "the place," and
2:04 pm
kirsten powers with "usa today" and fox news contributor. the "houston chronicle" saying ted cruz will get into the race tomorrow why did the media ignore the inconvenient fact that the mother said she was fine. >> i would say it was inappropriate if news reporters presumed to know how a child felt without talking to the child's mother. that was inappropriate. you have to understand ted cruz, of course and not liked democrats, by half the republican party and he is seen as a big threat and this would not be so much attention if the opponents did not think he was a serious political threat to their interests. >> is the undertone amy, some journalists think ted cruz is scary? >> i think so. we have the video so she can see it was a challenging moment. the key is what the mother said: no reporters spoke to her. instead, they wrote this
2:05 pm
novel-like account of what happened at the rally. we have the video so we can know the journalists were wrong. >> substitute game, a well liked politician maybe someone a democrat that would turned into a "challenging sweet home," portrayed differently. >> the mother said the reporters did not use the information according to her but even if cruz did not handle well and was awkward this is a 30-second item but the story just went viral with the headlines. >> it feeds interest an idea about a narrative that all the people that don't like him and i am not a fan of him and i have to say he was charming in the video so it is interesting to see that it was the opposite of the way he is portrayed. at the same time, journalists do this a lot because they are desperate for a step and though do not have anything to write and they see or hear this and they will run with it because it is something other than saying that ted cruz was giving a speech. >> you and picture journalists
2:06 pm
after this this moment talking with each other, after the event have having the impression and writing the same story which had nothing to do with what happened. >> cruz said the local press in new hampshire covered the substance of what he said that weekend and the natural press was all about him terrifying this little girl and now we will move to the "politico" story. this is from "politico" about marco rubio and the long friendship with a former congressman investigate add couple of times and campaign finance programs that do not involve rubio. they bought a decade ago a house and they are trying to sell it for less than $10,000. does this go along with "house of horrors of marco rubio." i don't see anything wrong with the story, it is long and i am not sure it citizens the kind of attention to the set up it was given if you started reading the
2:07 pm
story which was not well written but if you could figure it out it sound like it was setting up a giant scandal of a connection between the figures and it never delivered and was accurate and it was fairly recorded but there was is attention paid to something that did not deliver. >> worst it seems you could say that senator rubio has not cut loose completely with a controversy friend but if that became the house of more roz? >> ridiculous. the writer said this is symbolic somehow of senator rubio and i thought on page two do i have to read through the rest it. marco rubio is overly loyal and lost $10,000 on a louse deal and this is the scandal and it took a thousand words to get that across. >> nine pages when i printed it. >> if there was a question about a cut-rate mortgage or something i could see it. >> the implication is this is a partner was under investigation and he some highway, the
2:08 pm
implication, he should cut off ties. i don't think people have to cut off ties with friends under investigation. >> democrats are republicans who have gotten cut-rate dailies from mortgage company we will talk about candidate whose is associated with people who is made racist statements convicted terrorists, people who are convicted of bank fraud and wall street scandals, so, what is unusual? this seems less thanked accepted relationship. >> and the reporter said we spoke to a dozen people and all they could get was a reference to shakespeare. are you kidding me? >> the intimidation paragraph, we interviewed 400 people so do not try to match it. speaking of a story or not in "politico" a story about general public's wife and her father jeb's father-in-law. she has said that he abandoned family and they were divorced when she was ten and this story interviewed relatives on the father side who said no, no, no she ran off with general. is this important, interesting
2:09 pm
or nonstory? >> i don't think it is an important story. i thought it was outside the bounds of what journalist should be doing and we should not -- what seeps to have happened the mother was divorced, and she took the side of the mother. that is not an unusual thing to happen. >> show was ten. >> maybe she tried to reunite with the father and she lived with him a year but the fled to the story was the suggestion that somehow jeb bush or she was lying about this based on interviews from a family member that were s stranged. they are not the best sources for information. >> supposedly the father left the family 40 years ago, and she last specific him in 1972 and why see anything wrong with looking at that relationship as the article made it sound like it was the only facet of this. would we are to consider that must have shaped everything she and about. >> "washington post" today has a profile of her and it go into
2:10 pm
some of of this the dad but it is much bigger look broader look and fair look at a woman would grew up in mexico and potentially could be the first lady. >> i want to play a soundbite from democratic senate leader durbin talking about the stall nomination of loretta lynch. >> loretta lynch, the first african-american woman nominated toen attorney general is asked to sit in the back of the bus when it comes to the senate calendar. >> we can all agree he was laying the race card here. her nomination has been stalled by republicans for having to do with unrelated legislation, can you criticize that, cable chatter on the cable net words, but, "new york times" did not do a news story on this. >> it is newsworthy when a senator goes to the senate floor and makes such a ridiculous and frankly disgusting statement
2:11 pm
about his fellow senators putting a woman at the back of the bus, but back to jeb bush's wife, i thought this has as much relevance as tella novella sending a reporter to mexico to report on a 40-year-old divorce? >> president obama gave an interview accusing republicans of holding loretta lynch hostage, that is fair with a pet cause in the senate and it is sexual trafficking bill with antiabortion provisions the democrats do not like but he did not embrace racial rhetoric. is it a better story or durbin's comments? >> during bishop's comments based on the fact i have african person friends who were offended. some spoke out about it but it is something that democrats do over and over and it is nice to see them called out on it because rather than talking about the issues, it goes
2:12 pm
straight to, we will call it a racist or some name rather than it will have a debate about what is going on. >> it diminishes still charges of racism. we all agree it is ridiculous. >> there is not debate about her qualifications and everyone thinks it is a solid nominee. >> send me a wheat abeauty our show and you can e-mail us. heed, my report from the university of virginia whether the media are making a bloody arrest into another symbol of racial injustice. your the pundits suddenly so anxious to find a democratic opponent for hillary clinton?

2:15 pm
2:16 pm
did you sign the separation statement before you left state? did you sign that statement? >> the uproar over hillary clinton's private e-mail has taken an intriguing turn after the team changed its story to say every one its messages was reviewed before the, quote, personal ones were deleted and state department acknowledged she didn't sign an exit form. but you the controversy has prompted the pundits to talk of potential challengers to hillary with some openly pushing that idea. >> every other major party nomination there has been some serious competition. hillary clinton right now doesn't have much serious competition. >> democrats started to freak out. maybe it should be due value patrick instead of hillary
2:17 pm
clinton, let's try again to get elizabeth warren to run.value patrick instead of hillary clinton, let's try again to get elizabeth warren to run. >> amy, why are the media suddenly cheer leading for any democrat to take on hillary clinton? >> because hillary clinton right now is struggling with her pre-candidacy before she announces becoming president. but also frankly the left has always had an uneasy relationship with the clintons. if you remember bill clinton brought the democratic party to the center and even -- >> and journalists have had -- >> yes, an uneasy relationship with the clintons. >> doesn't this amount to pumping up people who either aren't going to run like joe biden or don't look terribly strong like former maryland governor martin o'malley or even the guy who sets hearts a flutter al gore saying he should run and make it about climate change? >> i think it's a legitimate story. there are plenty of democrats who are saying what happens if hillary implodes.
2:18 pm
there is no plan b. what could be the potential plan b. so i don't know if they're pumping them up. they're getting names from democrats who i think everybody has decided that hillary is the only way. >> so you think the coverage reflects an unease in the democratic party? >> or what amy was saying that there are democrats on the left side of the party that don't like hillary clinton. that they would like to see somebody else. >> it's always couched as competition is good for the party and hillary needs the batting practice. but my suspicion is the press needs a story. >> i think kirsten put her finger on it. you're acting as though the press is driving the story. to some degree that's true but i think the democrats are driving the story. therefore the press had permission in some cases even liberal facets of the press to do this store aggressively. >> but when a piece is written saying al gore should run it's because he'd like to see al gore
2:19 pm
run. >> i wouldn't be so sure about that. >> okay. >> same groups do the same kinds of stories over and over again and they seem to be like minded. you can group them all together. >> talking points go out, e-mails are sent. >> so braefief answer from everybody. is the e-mail story fadinge inging and maybe it didn't do as much damage as we thought it might shall. >> the good news is it's happening in march. >> so is it over? >> it's fading. they have run the clock out and it's so early. doesn't mean it won't come back, but i think it's probably dead in the mainstream media. >> i think there will be more peaks and valleys. >> you're seeing a comeback. >> there could be. there will be more developments. >> will you all at least acknowledge if we could somehow entice another prominent democrat into this case we would have an actual primary to
2:20 pm
cover? because right now we're lacking. >> i think governor o'malley believes himself to be a credible candidate. >> i do so too, but the question is will he be running. all right. thanks so much. ahead, were hbo and law enforcement in collusion in the making of that documentary about robert durst? but up next a "washington post" reporter walked into schock's strangely redecorated office. he'll tell us what happened next. before i had the shooting, burning, pins-and-needles of diabetic nerve pain, these feet... ...served my country... ...carried the weight of a family... ...and walked a daughter down the aisle. but i couldn't bear my diabetic nerve pain any longer. so i talked to my doctor and he prescribed lyrica. nerve damage from diabetes causes diabetic nerve pain. lyrica is fda-approved to treat this pain. lergic reactions or suicidal thoughts or actions. tell your doctor right away if you have these, new, or worsening depression
2:21 pm
or unusual changes in mood or behavior. or swelling, trouble breathing rash, hives, blisters, muscle pain with fever, tired feeling, or blurry vision. common side effects are dizziness, sleepiness, weight gain and swelling of hands, legs and feet. don't drink alcohol while taking lyrica. don't drive or use machinery until you know how lyrica affects you. those who have had a drug or alcohol problem may be more likely to misuse lyrica. now i have less diabetic nerve pain. and my biggest reason to walk... ...calls me grandpa. ask your doctor about lyrica.
2:22 pm
2:23 pm
aaron schock announced his resignation this week as several news organizations were revealing his highly questionable spending practices. the illinois congressman better known for his physique and constant stream of shirtless photos than sponsoring legislation. >> you have been called the brody jenner of congress by tmz.
2:24 pm
i've also learned from tmz that you have six pack abs. any truth to that, congressman? >> well -- >> it's a simple question. do you or do you not have six pack ans? >> as soon as i say that and then i get out of shape you'll use it against me.s? >> as soon as i say that and then i get out of shape, you'll use it against me.bs? >> as soon as i say that and then i get out of shape, you'll use it against me. >> a "washington post" reporter visited his office and noticed it had undergone an expensive make over. joining us now, ben terris. so you you walk in and you see the red calls anwalls and candles and you say to yourself this is a story? >> no, i just thought it was an interesting looking officer. but a woman popped out and started taking pictures and that's when it became a story. goit the a phone call from the press guy saying who told you can take pictures. you have to stop doing that. stay where you are. you created a crisis in the
2:25 pm
office. >> leaving aside the fact that it's an office paid for by the taxpayer, did his tone worry you? >> yeah somebody on the phone that i didn't expect to be calling me angrily. if anything, i thought they would want the story out that there is a cool looking office. and then somebody came me i had to delete the photos. >> and you refused of course. >> yeah. >> and later you agreed to delay the story a bit because congressman hasn't seen the office yet. >> writing a story on offices is not something i normally do. but when they said we can get the congressman to talk to you on monday i out i'll wait until monday. >> and then he didn't want to talk. >> yeah, monica around and no talk. >> so when schock's staff is saying don't do this story did you feel like you were being bullied? >> definitely pressured. they were trying to control the
2:26 pm
message. so the story i decided to write was about the kind of obsession with image in d.c.. people want to control the image they have. and when somebody stumbles into their office and wants to write something it doesn't always go their way. >> so all these pressure tactics, didn't that succeed in making it a story that got about 100,000 times more attention than might have otherwise? >> absolutely. there is a chance you all i would have done is tweeted out a couple photos saying look at this cool office. >> should you have focused immediately on the cost and the fact taxpayers are footing the bill? >> that's an interesting question. i'm not an investigative reporter. i don't dive into people's spending. i'm glad there are people out there who did because there was interesting news that came out afterwards. >> are you surprised by the media scrutiny? legitimate questions about schock who apparently overbilling the taxpayers for mileage in his district and
2:27 pm
taking rides on donors planes. >> yeah, absolutely. i knew it was a viral story pretty quickly. high phone started buzzing with tweets as soon as the story went out. i thought it would be a two day story and the kind of thing people thought about every once in a while. i did not expect there to be a trickle of sorries for six weeks. >> nor did you expect the congressman to resign. >> no and now a federal investigation, too. >> meanwhile quote of the year is schock's father telling the chicago's bls tv, two years from now he will be success if fess another if he's not in jail. not a happy story. ben terris, thanks very much for stopping by. coming up, why the huge story about a drunken crash involving two secret service agents didn't quite pan out. but first, why did the police wait to arrest robert durst until right before the finale of an hbo series that supposedly contained a confession?
2:28 pm
2:29 pm
2:30 pm
in a work, work, work world... take time for sunday. just know that your truck... has a little thing for monday.
2:31 pm
the six part hbo document taker on robert durst who is suspected in three murders is called the "the jinx." >> what do i say but how do i say it. i never internally purposely lie. may mistakes. i did not tell the whole truth. nobody tells the whole truth. >> nobody tells the whole truth. and it contained this seeming confession when the real estate heir was off camera in the bathroom but still miked up. >> i'm having difficulty with the questioning. what the hell did i do kill them all is this of course? of course. the director says they didn't find the so-called confession until two years later.
2:32 pm
>> once you hear it i guess you have a legal and moral obligation to go to the authorities. so when did that happen? >> when we found that subsequent admission. we contacted them and said we have something more. >> and police arrested him just before last sunday 's conclusion and have charged him with murder. joining us now to examine the ethical questions, in new york, maderissaa guthrie and here in washington, tearrrenceence smith. on the hbo filmmakers won't say exactly when they turned over that audio evidence. were they perhaps worri about spoiling their series? >> imagine that. interesting point, though. when did they cooperate and share with law enforcement. when did they not. what kind of deals were struck with law enforcement as to when an arrest might take place, was
2:33 pm
an arrest actually delayed for the series. it really provocative interesting questions. >> what is the ethical obligation here? what if hbo delayed and it turned out that be robert durst had fled the country or killed somebody else. it seems the timing is very questionable. >> it's very questionable. it appears that could you extrapolate that law enforcement is grand standing here. and they had the perfect opportunity with this very much highly publicized documentary series which was a six hour series. so it's been on for several weeks. but i think that the filmmakers knew they had a moral and ethical obligation. i think where it will get tricky and where durst's attorneys will have a lot of investigating to do on their own is when exactly they did start cooperating, when law enforce the found out about -- everybody is calling it a confession but it could also be the ramblings of a mentally
2:34 pm
damaged person. but it gives fodder to his defense team i think. >> you say they may be grand standing. i think they're mortified law enforcement. i think they're caught and the public will wonder why over all these years law enforcement could not being a coupleaccumulate the evidence and information. in the very last segment there they have nailed two the nonlegal eye. they have nailed this by at least with the susan berman murder with the writing. >> the handwriting very similar. i agree i'm putting confession in quotes. it is rambling. but i'm not buying the notion the cops say it was just a coincidence that they arrest him right before the finale.
2:35 pm
>> of course not. first of all i agree with you on that confession is it a confession. will it be admissible. can they demonstrate that that's what he was really saying or was he rambling. i mean i wouldn't know. about that. but the whole thing it's a very provocative case and i like you cannot believe that it was just a coincidence. law he'd gone to this hotel in new orleans and had big money and -- >> you cover the entertainment business. all this just gold for hbo. >> exactly. and they are not talking about it the executives at hbo. this was an acquired film, this wasn't something -- basically almost finished when they bought it. so this wasn't something that their executives in the documentary unit were working
2:36 pm
closely on throughout the ten years he was making this filling him. but to terry's point i think that the burden of -- the burden for the director is to make an entertaining film and much different burden for law enforce. . so he may appear guilty in the fill film because you can put interesting sound track to it. so it's a different burden. >> let me jump? because i want to ask about the director. he announced i'm not doing anymore interviews because i could be called as a witness. that complaint owedidn't occur to him before? >> i'd assume he's an automatic witness to describe what he found and how he found it. so there may be something more. why did he clam up. it's a fair question.
2:37 pm
>> because he doesn't want to answer some of these questions i believe. interesting side note, "new york times" coverage of this, the reporter saw the series well in advance which is not unusual to screen something. but then couldn't report the news because he'd agreed and didn't disclose to rearedders that he himself had been interviewed on the program. any much those things a problem? >> i'm not so sure that the fact that he appeared -- they should have put a note in his story. what's the harm. i don't think he crossed any ethical line. i mean these sorts of films, there is always reporters and talking heads. so i think that's fine. they didn't send everybody the last episode on purpose. i got the first three i think. and after watching the first lee before it started to air, my question to hbo was what happens, does he eventually confess?
2:38 pm
>> you you wanted to cut to the chase. before we go associated press originally reporting robert durst had been thewith the band biscuit. thanks very much. a fascinating melodrama. ahead, did you buy all that media gossip about vladimir putin and why he was missing in action? and after the break, i counted 16 television crews at the university of virginia after a racially charged arrest. but are the media rushing to judgment without all the facts? man n n n n n
2:39 pm
the real question that needs to be asked is "what is it that we can do that is impactful?" what the cloud enables is computing to empower cancer researchers. it used to take two weeks to sequence and analyze a genome; with the microsoft cloud we can analyze 100 per day. whatever i can do to help compute a cure for cancer, that's what i'd like to do.

2:42 pm
the blood was still on the sidewalk where police arrested martese johnson. they do not know if the confrontation was racial in nature or to what degree the student was resisting arrest. without force, according to the charges however, while 16 television crews showed up in charlottes view to cover the story the truth is we still do not know exactly what happened before a bystander cell phone video captured the bloody
2:43 pm
aftermath of a st. patrick's day arrest. >> i go to uva. i go to uva. i am [ blank ]. >> you are racist [blank]. >> this [blank] happening. >> you [blank]. >> but bartenders say the arrest of underage students are not unusual with 1,600 a year across virginia so why has this turned into a national story? >> if not for the cell phone video which is the heart of so many of the racially charged cases we brother not be here and neither would laugh a dozen other television cameras who came here to talk about the angry student reaction particularly among blacks but in the age of video and bloody face, we do not know what happened before. we do not see the resisting arrest or what led up to it but we do see a guy wounded up with ten ditches who happens to be the only black member of the honor society here at the university of virginia. the media are magnifying the
2:44 pm
minimum, emotions were running high at a sires of protests organized by black students and as they talked about the deaths of michael brown in ferguson and garner on staten island it became clear that the martese johnson incident served as a spark in igniting their griefans . >> i was debating dropping out of school because this is so tough, this is mentally exhausting every single day. >> university was found by thomas jefferson is fog students like huff, an insult. >> we have a race through at this university and we need to datas that. top talking about thomas jefferson like he is a god and he is a racist. >> some protesters acknowledged they had in evidence that the scuff goal with johnson was racially motivated but they are highly suspicious. >> something that got to me off
2:45 pm
the mar tease video if you watch it, he is on the ground and he is screaming, i am a uva student i am uv amount student and that is just should be very clear to everyone, yes, that is important, being a black male supersedes that in the eyes of law enforcement they are quick to be heavy handed when it is a black miami because of the perceived threat. >> if it was a white student with a fake i.d. i don't think he would be arrested. there would not be an issue there are plenty of students with fake i.d.s is they have not been brutalized. >> the coverage ratcheted up when the democratic governor ordered a state investigation. when uv at president met with martese johnson and expressed her sympathy. >> sullivan was criticized for overreacting by banning fraternityies when "rolling stone" reported a gang rape took place a botched story later discredited that led to urn.ists descreenedding on -- led to
2:46 pm
journalists descending on the campus. >> they leave after trying to get a story. >> ten stitches. blood. a little blood goes a long way so the pictures, maybe exaggerated but he probably got hurt for sure. >> uva student sees the media rushing to judgment. >> facts have not come out. for the public. this 10 bit premature. i understand the incentive of doing so but the facts should drive the media coverage rather than speculations that have come out based on other national issues that have emerged. >> the man who can answer the questions made a brief appearance with his lawyer who made a statement on johnson's behalf. >> i'm shock my face was slammed into the bridge pavement across the street from where i attend school. three officers pinned me to the ground, pressing their knees in my back while blood flowed freely from the gash to my head. as the officers held me down
2:47 pm
one thought raced through my mind: how could this happen? >> martese johnson did not speak and the lawyer took no questions from reporters. johnson's rush for questions to fox news and he marched with other students leading a media narrative missing crucial facts. >> can you talk about what happened? >> we do not know what happened with the arrest of martese johnson whose blood is still on the sidewalk over here. but the invasion of television crews is cast this as a national symbol of another racially charged incident involving a young black man. >> we do not know what happened but after the break how the "washington post" had to walk back the story of two secret service agents and a light night crash that what. >> a columnist who saying he is a straighter skying the original ferguson narrative was a lie.

"the washington post" headline was pretty dramatic. secret service agents investigated for a late night car accident saying they may have drove over a suspicious package and that got picked up just about everywhere. >> allegations of a car crash at a white house. >> two agents crash into the white house. >> slamming, wasted, driving. >> a drunken crash. really. >> the white house under siege by jealous killer car. >> "the washington post"
2:52 pm
softened the story with a serious of online. secret service investigated after car hits white house bar kate. i talked to a official who saw a video who says the agent's car was moving very slowly toward a guard house and nudged aside a barrel. and moved past the suspicious item on the ground. is there a temptation on a story like this to push it a little bit too much beyond what you have documented? >> apparently yes, and i would say this highlights a couple of problems we've talked about in the past. the tendency for some in the media to pick up things from other reports. sometimes you have to do that but it highlights the dangers of taking a piece of information from someone who was supposedly told something from a good source. it was incorrect and blew it and spread like wild fire. >> the source just doesn't have all the facts or the source
2:53 pm
pushes the nar tiff a little too farp. "the washington post" did very good reporting about secret service in the beginning with the fence jumper who somehow got into the white house and also had to run corrections about the story about the armed guy who shared an elevator with president obama. he was not a convicted fellen. the facts can change rather quickly. >> here's the problem. i assume this is somebody the paper thought was a good source gave bad information. why were they a good source? how did the information come about? i always ask the question in whose interest it for the story to be exaggerated? who is it that wants people to think the secret service is more out of control in that incident in particular than others. i always wonder what interest is behind picking up a story. >> journalists have to factor in that sources have an agenda.
2:54 pm
